In This Webinar
Learn about access and disability rights for public transportation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The Department of Transportation (DOT) in 2015 revised its rule under the ADA specifically to provide that public transit entities are required to make reasonable modifications to policies, procedures and practices to ensure that transportation programs are accessible to individuals with disabilities. What qualify as reasonable modifications? What does not meet the definition? This webinar will expand your understanding of reasonable modifications in public transit, and practice application of your knowledge though practical case study examples.
We use Zoom for our virtual platform.
Audio is provided through the virtual platform or by phone.
Real-time captioning and American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting available during the webinar.
The webinar will be recorded for archival purposes.
Food is an important part of our work culture. We celebrate holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions by coming together with our colleagues for a potluck meal and dessert. We meet customers at restaurants to network and seal the deal. We attend conferences and eat the lunch that is included in the registration fee. All of these things can affect the environment in which we work if we are one of the 33 million Americans who have food allergies.
This session will discuss food allergy as a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), how to accommodate a person with food allergies in the workplace, and share resources to help employers and employees to address this important issue in the workplace.
